\Here’s a film that flew under my radar and it comes from Korea which gave us the awesome female centric action/thriller The Villainess. The new film is titled The Witch: Subversion and it follows the story of a woman who escapes from a government facility years ago only to have her past catch up to her as she fights for her life. Check out the trailer and Blu-Ray cover below courtesy of Well Go USA!
10 years ago, Ja-yoon escaped from a secret government facility in the midst of an inexplicable incident. An old couple finds her alone near death in the woods and takes her in even though she has no memory of who she is or how she got there. She grows up to be a bright high school student and enters a nationally televised audition program to win the top prize and help her struggling family. But as soon as she appears on TV, strange people start appearing in her life and Ja-yoon falls into turmoil as her seemingly ordinary life turns upside down in a blink of an eye… Featuring an award-winning performance by Kim Da-mi and co-starring Choi Woo-shik (PARASITE, TRAIN TO BUSAN).
Helmed by Hoon-jung Park, the film stars new action sensation Kim Da-Mi as well as Jo Min-Soo, Choi Woo-Sik, Go Min-Si, Park Hee-Soon and Da-Eun.
The trailer features some pretty kick ass and brutal fight sequences and this one looks like it will be right in my wheel house so I can’t wait to check it out. Newcomer Kim Da-Mi looks phenominal and the action choreography looks off the hook just like in The Villainess. Asian action cinmea has been making a well received comeback as of late and here is more proof of that.
The Witch: Subversion hits Blu-Ray, DVD and Digital on March 10th and Pre-Order is up and running at Amazon.com so indulge in the trailer below!
